Pedestrians interacting with a passenger car; A study of real world accidents
Paper i proceeding, 2011

Pedestrian safety priorities for passenger cars are usually based on data with varying car makes and models. This study presents a new database, V-PAD (Volvo Cars Pedestrian Accident Database), with a homogeneous car sample providing a relevant, up-to-date distribution of accident situations as well as pedestrian characteristics and driver information. A total of 330 pedestrian car accidents are analyzed with the aim to present a first summary of the V-PAD data in terms of accident, injury and impact aspects. The database with cars of the same types gives unique possibilities to design and evaluate effective safety measures for pedestrian safety. The results in this study will form the basis for further improvements, both considering driver support and crash compatibility.
